Bought these tires on a budget as they cost 40% cheaper than the Continental Sports Contact 5 I had previously, that wore out in just 25,000kms. The new V2 Concept 2 had similar grip levels in acceleration and cornering, excellent turn in, slightly soft sidewalls during hard cornering, but is quiet, comfortable and have lower rolling resistance. The only drawbacks are that it doesn't brake as well in the dry and wet as the CSC5, needing a longer distance to come to a complete stop. On the bright side, the treadwear rating is almost double at 500 compared to 280 of the CSC5. It's a great tire for daily driving, especially in the city where there maybe rough or uneven roads, as it dampens the impact and road noise. I haven't pushed it to the limits yet, as I'm still letting the tyres run in, but the CSC5 could take up to 145kph at a bend before losing grip on my 168bhp APR stage 1 Golf MK7. I've only gone up to 100kph on the Hankooks in a bend and 160kph on straights. So far no regrets and I'm confident of its handling at high speeds. Will continue to monitor and give a mid life review in future.
